Final Preparations for Cheltenham

Following our success at the North of England Regional Championships in March, the Band is now building up to the National Finals on September 22nd in Cheltenham.

The Band has been riding high through the summer after qualifying for the Nationals as one of two bands from the North of England. The Autumn concerts have now got off to a great start with a highly acclaimed performance at Filey last Sunday. This Saturday (14th) the Band will be performing at Harrogate Flower Show between 11.30am  and 1.15pm.

For all fans of Brass Band music and supporters of the ERYB, this Sunday (15th) at Clowes Methodist Church, Greenwood Avenue, Hull at 7.45 pm, there will be an open rehearsal prior to the National Championships the following Sunday.

The format of the evening will be:  A 30 minute rehearsal on the test piece “Penlee” by Simon Dobson, followed by a first public performance. Then a further hour of rehearsal to conclude with a second performance of “Penlee”. The audience will have the opportunity to stay for the full two hour rehearsal or alternatively leave after the 1st performance. The evening will give a wonderful insight into the preparations required for a competition such as this which have been going on throughout the summer. There is no charge for this evening.

We trust that many will be able to join us as we start the last week of preparation.
